Anyone one else love this program?

Nothing like a controversial planning application to get people up in arms.

Fascinating to see how the Governments new slimmed down planing laws are being tested in practice. It's a bloody free for all for the housing developers, I sympathise with anyone who has a house overlooking a peaceful field as lozster says.

Planners are generally an affable reasonable bunch aren't they? TV wise, just as well they get the necessary colourful characters from the Councillers, applicants and protesters!

Why on earth do people buy a Grade 2* listed building without researching what they will be able to do to it first?

I think I'm with the planners on the scottish house. Lived near there and neither the house nor restoring the parkland would have meant that the countryside would be any more accessible to the public.. if anything I'd think it would be more restricted. Houses like that don't fulfill a local housing need either
